Boy Scout Troop 326 Needs Fly Fishermen Volunteers

The Boy Scouts of troop 326 in Martinsville are going for a Fly Fishing merit badge and need your help. The troop will be staying at the Bassett cabin on the Smith River, June 12-13.

The troop will need to cover most of the practical requirements of the merit badge at this location; knots, casting, fishing, flies, insects, etc. For the activities at the cabin, several experienced fly fisherman are needed who can come and guide a small team of scouts on the river to fish. The guides will need to bring gear for this part as well. Leaky bootfoot waders and old Fenwicks would be fine for the scouts.

The volunteers will be well fed and accommodated in the cabin if they would like to stay and camp with the leaders. The scouts will be camping outside. The volunteers will be provided with a guide and a hand copy of the merit badge requirements that can be carried with them to know what to cover.

If you are interested in volunteering for this fun-filled adventure, contact Shane Pinkston by phone at 276-732-5090 or by email at today!
